Gov.Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano and governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will receive the “shock of its lives” in the supplementary poll.

Abba Yusuf, candidate of the PDP polled 1,014,353 votes ahead of Ganduje who secured 953,522 votes, leaving a margin of 26,655 votes.

But Bello Shehu, returning officer for the election, declared the poll inconclusive, citing the cancellation of over 100,000 votes across 172 polling units.

In a statement issued on his behalf by Muhammad Garba, commissioner of information, Ganduje said he remains the candidate to beat in the election.

The governor said the election was widely characterised by vote buying and voter intimidation.

Expressing commitment to a free and fair election, Ganduje said all the loopholes that created the chance of rigging had been blocked.

“APC as a party has also re-strategized and very confident of victory because the local government areas where the rerun will take place remain the APC stronghold and the electorate in these areas have made up their mind to vote massively for the Governor they trust.

“The modest achievements recorded so far by the Ganduje Administration have touched the lives of the people in all sectors of development and and also remain determined to continue if returned.”
